Mary's place by the sea is open for day and overnight retreats at this time

Protocol for Guests  

The following protocols have been put in place for the health and safety of our guests. For those who are unable to visit our home at this time, Mary's Place continues to offer virtual services daily.  If you are interested in learning more about virtual services, please email virtualguest@marysplacebythesea.org
 

Doctor’s Note - Mandatory for Massage and Reflexology

If you wish to have an oncology massage or reflexology during your visit, a doctor’s note is REQUIRED. Please have your Doctor indicate that you are cleared for these services on their letterhead or on a script pad. You may email the letter to or fax to 732-361-0135.

Masks

Masks are OPTIONAL for all guests, volunteers and staff in GROUP settings at this time. Masks are REQUIRED for both practitioners and guests in INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS at this time.

Hand Sanitizer

Mary’s Place provides “no-touch” hand sanitizer stations throughout the home for your use. We also encourage you to practice frequent hand washing.

Cleaning/Common Areas

The house undergoes a medical grade cleaning twice per week, in between our retreats. In addition, volunteers and practitioners are trained to clean the various common areas, service rooms and spa spaces, throughout the day and between sessions. Volunteers pay special attention to high traffic areas and wipe down door knobs, elevator buttons, railings in the stairwells and push bars on doors, as well as other frequently touched areas in the home. 

Capacity

Mary’s Place by the Sea has significantly reduced the number of people in the home daily. At this time we are welcoming a maximum of 5 guests for each retreat. We are also limiting the number of volunteers and practitioners coming in and out of the home on a given day.

Services & Social Distancing

Individual and Group Services allow for social distancing (6 ft apart) between guests and practitioners. The only exceptions to this are for oncology massage, reiki therapy and reflexology. If you are receiving oncology massage, you may remove your mask when lying on your stomach.
Some group services are broken into two groups for sessions such as yoga.

Please also note that some services that are usually offered may not be available during your visit. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these times.

Mary’s Place offers a wide range of complimentary services to our guests.  We work with you to customize your visit so that you can take advantage of as many, or as few, of these services as you want.  We can also develop customized services if you let us know what you need in advance.  All of our services are provided by experienced, highly-qualified practitioners. Some services include: Oncological Massage, Reiki/Healing Touch therapy, Integrative Self-Care Therapies, Nutritional counseling, Journal Writing, Social Worker/Counseling, Gentle Yoga.
